I didn't say it was ugly, I think it looks very nice
I was just wondering if he really looks like that

Sauron looks a little bit like a wicked version of Legolas with black hair and fiery orange eyes haha

Nevertheless, that's how I imagine Sauron to look like in the First Age.

Какой Сауроничка красивый и глазастый ^.^
*да, я уже не удивляюсь, что большинство талантливых авторов, рисущих по Толкиену - русские. Это не патриотизЬм, это факт*

This is totally amazing. Look almost like photo. So magic and yet so... real.

 I was thinking about costume of him. I'm not sure, if I'll try it, but don't mind if I get inspired and do it in style of your work?
At least I want to try do that jewelery coins with eye.

Another great interpretation of Sauron. Could you make an artwork with his different forms, like he is changing from Annatar to this?

I like the idea of Sauron as an evil Elf. And the amount of detail you worked in is fantastic.

I love your way of thinking and imagining the apperance of Tolien's characters. Your Sauron is gorgeous. If I were a Numenorean, i would hardly refuse to join him.

There's something in him that makes me feel like when I read "Silmarillion" for the first time. I believe You caught this intangible "thing", that thin and undefined border between beauty and hunger for power, which portend future terror.
